reaction to these reports that the white house, the obama administration was cautioning the algerian government on how to respond to this hostage taking and this group of terrorists? >> i think that is probably exactly right. i think the algerians are very experienced people at fighting, and they don't give a lot of time to develop. i think it is probably very crude to say that i think the algerians value that gas production more than the people that were being held hostage. there were very worried about the plan being destroyed. i think that is why they moved right away. >> they were concerned, and i heard it in my debate. the americans and the french could do it. there was a draw flying. special forces moving. they looked very concerned that we would go in and therefore they could not absorb a politically. they went. lou: ignored by washington, european capitalists. >> what i think the algerians understood, knowing what they know about those g how this, if they don't terminate the issue very quickly, there are other cells. this is not just for overseas. algeria itself, there were o
